    Godzilla [25] -1998-

    Movie Reviews
    I braved the Memorial day weekend crowds and saw Godzilla during an afternoon matinee and I must say I've never seen more 8-year-olds in my life! This movie for me personally does not rate in the middle twenties, an area I usually reserve for movies I'd see again and list as my all-time favorites. Then why did I rate it so highly you ask? Two reasons: First, the visual effects are cool. The computer animators realy worked hard and displayed that they learned their lessons from working on the likes of "Jurassic Park" and "The Lost world". Godzilla is an agile beast--smart too. Not knowing how many "puppets" were used in the movie, I give credit to the computer animators for making this 20,000 ton monster move realistically! You gotta see it on the big screen!

    The second reason for rating this movie highly is the PG rating. I sat through this whimsical "monster movie" and it never occurred to me until the end that I heard nary a swear word--that the violence: lots of stomping, screaming, running, shooting at Godzilla etc. was more appropriate than graphic. Yes, people got hurt. Buildings were demolished and cars flattened--but not in a bloody gory way. Much of that destruction is implied and should be expected for a monster Godzilla's size making Manhattan its home! In sharp contrast to "Starship troopers" a violent movie I WOULD NOT take a child under 12 to go see, "Godzilla" would probably be OK to let someone under 12, accompanied by a parent, go see (depending on the child). Unlike some of the animated fodder being produced these days, "Godzilla" would make for a fun-filled Family outing--entertaining for both adults and thier 2.5 kids.

    Shameless plug: After the movie head for the nearest toy aisle and gawk at the collosal assortment of Godzilla toys! Worst Product tie-in goes to Godzilla Ice cream. A vanilla ice cream with Godzilla chocolate chunks! (Oh, the pain!) {JB}
